. phoenix, arizona on our line for republicans. what should the president say on the u.s. involvement in libya on monday? caller: if he's the intelligent president i want him to tell us why we're going into libya and not the sudan and not bahrain. i think it's un:tionable to open another front when we're spending millions a day on iraq and afghanistan and 50% of our revenue goes to defense. host: the sudan would be another front, too. caller: we could help solve that with humanitarian aid. with the cost in fossil fuels, if we paid the actual cost that fossil fuels cost us, we would pay $12.50 a gallon for gasoline because these wars are about oil. what i'm saying is if he's the innocent president then why doesn't he talk about -- intelligent president why doesn't he talk about the bahrain or sudan? he's doing it for oil just like the last -- just like the iraq war. and i think we need to question why we're doing these things. if we want to help people resisting and trying for democracy, let's do that. but let's not be hidden about our agenda.
for joining us. >> thank you. >> jamie: what is on the table actually for the u.s.? >> well, we could, declare a no-fly zone but that is complicated, because, while the u.s. has aircraft, in all the nate tows countries, italy and britain and germany we cannot use this aircraft unless we have permission from the host country and that is not likely to come. they've already said they will not give permission unless the u.n. or nato-wide agrees to that and that will not happen. >> jamie: going it alone -- >> we'd be in it alone and, a no fly zone is not just to say, nobody fly over lybia, what a no-fly zone would require is that u.s. aircraft, probably based on carriers, would go in to lybia and would bomb lybia and bomb the air defense system of lybia and fly 24/7 over lybia and that is a major commitment. and, also sets the precedent, what about the next revolution that you will see? because you will see more of these. and, so, the question is, could we do it? yes, we could but it is at a great cost and secondly, joe, jamie is the question, should we? now, right now, so far the libyan rebels are
: what a world. martha: we are glad to have you with us in "america's newsroom." bill: you've got it "happening now" starts right now. jenna: breaking developments in a brand-new story this hour, developments fast and furious out of libya where the rebels putting up quite a fight as qaddhafi forces turn up the heat bringing in tanks, firing rockets and launching more attacks. out of syria, the country's entire cabinet just resigned. a major discrimination lawsuit against walmart. will the supreme court let it go forward? it's a big question, it's all new, it's all live, "happening now." we've been on a roll with big news days, haven't we, greg. gregg: we certainly have. jenna: we are so glad you are with us. gregg: i'm greg jarrett in for jon scott. there are brand-new developments to tell you about in libya where a battle for qaddhafi's hometown is raging. just some of the gunfire there, rebel forces armed with machine guns working very hard to make headway after a set back in sirte. progovernment forces beating them back using tanks, heavy mortar and rockets, but the outgunned r
at that reactor are overheating. authorities are now working on a plan to use a water cannon to cool down a pool which is storing spent fuel rods at the number 4 reactor who was on fire earlier today. jenna: we are taking a look at the helicopters that were going to lower water on some of the nuke plants. there are still after shocks happening. have there been any more earthquakes today in japan. reporter: the last earthquake which shook tokyo happened about one and a half hours ago. that was just northeast of tokyo. and today there have been at least seven quakes with a magnitude of 5 and over. they actually seem to be heading in a southwest direction towards tokyo, and last night there was one which was literally underneath mount fugi which is tkoer tphapbt and overlooks tokyo, and that did spook some people, but there is no indication that it could lead anything to be some kind of eruption. jenna: david ross is taking in the destruction and terrible weather that hit the coastline in japan. maybe a personal question for you. how are you dealing with the situation and operating there in japan a
. in order to do the transportation projects we need in the county, in order for us to continue economic development, we need a source of revenue that's coming in. >> reporter: baker is expecting his support will result in major transportation projects getting done in prince georges county. >> we're willing to bring our significant amount of votes, 23 members in the house, 8 members in the senate, around this measure, then the transportation projects we have, whether it's new carrollton, whether it's projects around grant avenue, we think those should be on the top of the list in the governor's budget. >> reporter: but some constituents don't agree. >> taxes in the county already ridiculous, you know? property tax. he want more taxes in gasoline? he's got to be out of his mind. >> reporter: state lawmakers have a $1.4 billion gap they're going to have to close in or to balance this budget. in the past, they've borrowed money from transportation to take care of these kinds of issues. if this bill passes it will include an amendment that will keep lawmakers from being able to do that in th
that was run by the u.s. will be commanded by nato, an obama diplomatic win. but many in congress warn president obama not to send u.s. ground troops to depose gadhafi, who is said to be in this car today. >> yes, we want him out. no, we don't want to do it at the enormous cost of military invasion. >> reporter: the president has to justify taking sides in what some see as a civil war. >> will america's commitment & end in days, not weeks, as the president promised? >> reporter: defense secretary gates admitted on "meet the press," libya is not vital. >> no, i don't think it's vital interests for the united states, but we clearly have interests there, and it's a part of the recently, which is a vital interest for the united states. >> reporter: a region in chaos, uprisings in egypt, syria, bahrain, jordan, might the president commit the u.s. military elsewhere. libya's already cost about $1 billion. with no clear end in sight. >>> tonight, some u.s. naviville vessels are reported to be pulling out of the mediterranean. tomorrow, u.s. allies meet about libya. the plan is to put pressure
patrolling off libya's coast, this as the u.s. gets ready to hand over control of the no fly zone to the alliance. whatever that alliance is. we don't know at this time. in the meantime pro car davi forces ratchet up attacks in an eastern city of that country, stopping rebel groups there, but the international air strikes continue and now we have reports that those attacks forced pro qaddafi forces to withdraw tanks from another rebel-held city in the west. a whole lot goes on there today, jon. jon: the libyan leader remains as defiant as ever, appearing from his compound in tripoli and vowing to win the historic battle. now there's word, though, that mommar qaddafi may be planning his exit strategy. secretary of state hillary clinton, weighing in on that on abc's "world news with diane sawyer". >> this is what we hear from so many sources, diane, it is a constanto. >> today? >> today, yesterday, the day before. some of it, i'll be very, you know -- it's my personal opinion -- some of it is theater. a lot of it is just the way he bee haves. it's somewhat unpredictable. but some of
increase the budget and put us on all the ideas. if we for example -- there are so many assumptions, and very different figures but if we saw an economic growth that we want, if we saw as afghanistan, having 52% with defense spending be pretty you would see us get to that level. .. >> what would be the consequences of failing to increase the defense budget by in real terms some noticeable amount from 2015? >> if we wanted the rate of real terms increase will determine how quickly we can get to the benchmarks that we have set out for 2020. if it is a steep increase, we will reach that point earlier. >> what do you mean by steep? let's say 3% real terms increase pay year? >> well, that would be very nice. [laughter] >> and, of course, that -- it also depends on the decisions that we take in the early years as to where we are on the carbon as to the upswing of that. they are all dependent on, if, for example, we were to take steeper savings in the early year, it requires a sharper upswing in the late years to get to the same point. the rate -- the actual number of the real terms growth
